Valley News & Views Page 5 March 1st, 2012 When we think of the unrest in the Middle East, Israel is typically the first nation to come to mind, and for good reason. The stated goal of virtually every, if not every Islamic nation and terrorist organization in that region is the destruction of Israel and the annihilation of the Jewish people, wherever they may be found. Centuries before Jesus' birth Jewish prophets wrote of the intense hatred that would ixist in the latter days against His people by not only her neighbors but by every nation of the world. ONe such prophecy is found in Zechariah 12: 2- 3 which says, "I will make Jerusalem and Judah like an intoxicating drink to all the nearby natuions that send their armies to besiege Jerusalem. On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone, a burden for the world" (NLT). At the present time there is a tremendous upheaval spreading throughout the Midddle East. Much of it is Arab on Arab. We see it ir Libya, Egypt, and Syria where thousands of Syrians have been kolled by President Assad's military. We could also speak of Iraq, which some see as being close to a civil war between two Islamic factions vying for power. While these conflicts do not affect Israel directly, they do negatively impact them long term. The reason is that those taking over for now deposed dictators, are seen as even more radical and determined to rid the Middle East of the Jewish state than those they overthrew. To add fuel to the fire, if more was needed, we have Iran pushing hard to develop nuclear weapons for the stated purpose of using them agains Israel and eventually America. God doesn't promis America's survival, but He does say He will "watch over the people of Judah..." (12:4). by pastor leroy aufenkamp .......... ...... i CJI  U C m C  _ .......

March is National Nutrition Month. The 2012 Nutrition Month slogan is "Get your Plate in Shape". When we eat we are encouraged to fill half of our plate with fruits and vegetables. Other suggestions are to make at least half of our grains whole grains, to drink fat- free or low-fat milk. We are also encouraged to vary our protein choices, cut back on sodium and empty calories from solid fats and added sugars. We are encouraged to enjoy our food-but to eat less of it, and to be physically active. Thank you to everyone who ordered Valentine cookies.

Since there are multiple bus drivers who have Wednesday evening church services during Lent, the club is unable to provide the bus ride home from now through March. Adventure Club will dismiss at 5:00 p.m. during Lent so families can attend church together. If parents take turns carpooling among one and other to pick up their kids at Teien, the hope is that it will all work for a few weeks. The following dates Adventure Club will not have return busing to Drayton. February 29 March 14 March 21 March 28 Please note there is no Adventure Club on March 7th because several of the guides will be gone. Regular busing will resume at the regular dismissal time of 5:15 p.m. on April 4th. cardamom In a large bowl, combine first five ingredients. Stir in ginger, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom.
